Diocese Seeks Outside Investigator in Suicide
By Associated Press
OWENSBORO, Ky. – The Roman Catholic Diocese of Owensboro is asking an independent investigator to look into possible sexual abuse allegations posted on the Internet by a man who fatally shot himself at a church.
The diocese said in a statement Monday its own review board made that recommendation to Bishop William F. Medley after looking at the Facebook posting made by 23-year-old David M. Jarboe.
The statement said Jarboe's posting mentioned enduring pain as a result of sexual abuse in the church, possibly by a priest.
Jarboe was found shot and lying in the grass Thursday at Blessed Mother Catholic Church in Owensboro. He died that night.
